This Just in: More From George R. R. Martin

Donald Trump Sues Bill Maher for 5 Million Bananas

Donald Trump Sues Bill Maher for 5 Million Bananas

It looks like someone left the Orangutan cage open again.  Donald Trump, longtime target of Real Time host Bill Maher’s punchlines, is a bit upset over Bill’s jokes. The Don today said in an interview with Jay Leno that he would be suing the comedian over his… comedy. The joke in question: Clearly poking fun of the Don’s $5 million offer to President Obama to “open up his college records” Bill, in jest, said he’d give $5 million to Trump’s charity of choice if the businessman could prove he’s not the.. “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” Well, Mr Trump isn’t one to sit...

S2 / E4 ‘It’s a Shame About Ray’ – The Best Episode of ‘GIRLS’ to Date

S2 / E4 ‘It’s a Shame About Ray’ – The Best Episode of ‘GIRLS’ to Date

Last night’s episode of ‘GIRLS’ was the absolute best the series has to offer thus far. We see the consequences of past decisions – pulled from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. We were cracking up with laughter, we were fighting back tears, we found ourselves recognizing notable changes in our characters. Just when I was beginning to doubt Lena Dunham, ‘GIRLS’ puts out, in my opinion, one of the most memorable episodes in HBO history. I was cracking up throughout the entire episode – Hannah’s theatrics with the butcher knife, Shoshonna realizes she has a roommate, Jessa meets...

You will of course still need an HBO subscription but we know that some people practically live...

This Just In: Another Series for Dunham?

This Just In: Another Series for Dunham?

Miss Lena Dunham just might have more to offer HBO if they option what she is going to write next. The multi-hyphenate of GIRLS, along with show runner and executive producer Jenni Konner (pictured at right) plan to write another potential series based on the life of one Betty Halbreich. Who, you ask? Why you know Betty, she’s the ultimate personal shopper for Bergdorf Goodman. Anyone who is rich and famous in New York goes through her apparently. She has been the dresser and confidante of three generations of Manhattan socialites and stars including Joan Rivers, Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katie Couric and Glenn Close....
